Black woman sentenced to prison for ‘waterboarding her children’ and beating them ‘with a baseball bat’

People like this should receive the same treatment they inflict on their innocent children. This St. Louis mother and father beat their three little children with baseball bats, electrical cords and Lord knows what else. They waterboarded these children. What was done to these little ones was nothing short of torture and sheer evil. They will carry the physical and emotional scars the rest of their lives. I hope now that these monsters have been sentenced, they will stay imprisoned for as long as possible. May they rot in prison for what they have done.

From the Daily Mail:

A St Louis woman is going to prison after being sentenced Friday to 78 years for the ‘systematic torture’ of her children.

Lakechia Schonta Stanley, 34, admitted to whipping, beating and waterboarding her three children and faced 34 felonies, including counts of assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

The abuse came to light in October 2011, when Stanley’s then-10-year-old daughter arrived at school with complaints of pain in her arm, reports the St Louis Post-Dispatch.

The girl told her school librarian her mother had beaten her with a bat as punishment for not promptly cleaning the kitchen.

The librarian found the arm cold to the touch, and when the girl was later treated at the hospital, medical staff found that profound abuse had caused trauma that constricted blood supply to the arm.

The girl also confided that her sister, 8, had been beaten with the baseball bat because she had spent too long in the shower.

Prosecutors said that Stanley, who along with her husband, Alexander Rui Stanley, 30, had also whipped the girls with electrical cords, left profound physical injuries along with emotional trauma.

The scarring on the two little girls was the worst Detective Robert Jauer had ever seen. The children were also subjected to freezing and scalding showers if they didn’t move fast enough or do something to their parents liking. Some people should never have children and I hope these two will never be allowed near them again. This is just sick and my heart aches for the children.
